UPI News Service, 01/08/2013 

A New Jersey man's lawsuit against a country club and some of its members alleges he was tricked into eating a marijuana-laced brownie.

Barry Russo, 68, whose lawsuit describes him as a "diabetic with high blood pressure and a previous history of ... stroke," is accusing Copper Hill Country Club members James Kavanagh Jr. and Gregg Chaplin of tricking him into eating the marijuana brownie June 1 by claiming it had been made by Kavanagh after taking several culinary courses, the Bridgewater (N.J.) Courier News reported Tuesday.

The lawsuit, which names Kavanagh, Chaplin and club President James MacDonald, alleges club members told Russo about the brownie's contents after he started feeling lightheaded, dizzy and numb -- effects he described as similar to those he experienced when he had his stroke.

The lawsuit alleges MacDonald delayed calling medical help for Russo in an attempt to hide his "poisoning" from others at the club.

Calls to MacDonald and Chaplin for comment went unreturned, the Courier News said. A number listed for Kavanagh was out of service when the newspaper called it.
